If you think that's so, it's you who misunderstands.  This is
determining the plugin path, not sys.path.

This is the plugin path, not the import path, and so we get to determine
how it works.  I think we should:

1. generate a list of all plugins
2. where there are name conflicts, choose the last-found plugin
3. load all plugins in the list.

I disagree.  Applying this change would break our existing override
